Stolen car ends up on roof after robbery in Wokingham


A MAN is being sought by police after assaulting a pizza delivery driver, stealing his car and then colliding with another car in Wokingham on Saturday night.

Just before 9pm a 24-year-old man was delivering pizza to an address in Goodchild Road. He returned to his car, a silver Vauxhall Corsa which was parked nearby, when he was grabbed from behind by a man.

The man punched the victim in the stomach, before stealing his car keys and the car.

The stolen car was then driven along London Road, before colliding with a VW Polo in Finchampstead Road. The Vauxhall Corsa ended up on its roof, and the offender made off on foot.

It is believed the offender may have sustained injuries from the collision.

Investigating officer Det Con Stuart Hawkes of  Loddon Valley CID said: “We would like to speak to anyone who saw the robbery in Goodchild Road or the silver Corsa being driven through Wokingham around that time or an injured man running from the scene in Finchampstead Road.”

Anyone with information about this incident, who has not yet contacted the police, is asked to call 101 quoting URN 1425 10/10 and asked to speak to Det Con Hawkes.
